We are the manufacturers of Falkland Fisher Quality Fast Fishing Boats . 
With a unique gullwing Hull concept , with the Hull built on a hard wood  keel, for added strength  as standard (unlike most boats in our class), it gives an exhilarating ride when on the plane and an excellent stable platform when at  anchor or on the drift.
These boats are certainly built to last !  
It handles a rough  sea  as  good  as  a  smooth  one! giving  an  extremely dry  ride.
  
                             cardiff bay front on
 
The Boats came into being due to local demand for a trailerable dinghy,capable of handling rough seas, big enough for four or five anglers yet small enough to easily launch and retrieve by one angler.It will give you 15 knts with a 30hp outboard , and 25 knts with a  40hp outboard in the right conditions.
 
An optional extra well worth considering is a 12v Anchor Winch. Making your day's boating even easier !

 The Boats have superb handling and lateral stability and with speeds attained of over 30 knots with a 60hp outboard fitted ,it has a real turn of speed to get out to fishing marks or into shore quickly if the  weather  deteriorates!
Dave Lewis  of  "SEA ANGLER" RECENTLY  WROTE 
"At first glance  you  can see this is a boat that has been designed with the serious angler in mind .  I can sum  up  the  Falkland  Fisher  in  one  word- exhilarating" ! 
"This really  is  a  cracking  little  package that  offers  a superb  combination of the practicality  of a serious angling boat   with  a  high level  of  top  end  performance"."I got nearly 30knots out of it which is fast enough for anyone " !!
Dave Barham of "BOAT FISHING MONTHLY"  RECENTLY WROTE after visiting us at our stand at the Southampton Boat Show.
"The boat has been designed by serious boat anglers and as such is packed full of exciting and functional ideas." "It was great to finally step on one and you get an awful lot of fishing space" "We'll definately be doing a full on test soon !,"
  
The Falkland Fisher 500  has some surprisingly innovative features which come as standard !

Polycarbonate windows are bolted over the GRP to prevent rogue waves pushing them in, essential if fishing over sandbanks or in shallow water . This is a standard feature on all Falkland Fishers.

  Another Falkland Fisher 500 Package ready for delivery! This one is destined for Dorset,  England.
 
 The Falkland Fisher 500  has many improved safety features compared to the MK1 versions, including a raised cuddy and increased freeboard all round.There are new internal mouldings and  increased buoyancy  as standard.The Falkland Fisher 500  really sets the pace and lasts it!
 
   IMG_0676
 
The built in moulded anchor locker is massive ! Ideal for keeping warp / anchor , retreival buoy etc out of the way and off the main deck or seating area .
This is self draining .
Quality stainless steel heavy duty Bow Roller and
 5" sampson post also come as standard, unlike  the  majority  of  our  competitors who  use cheap,  imported plastic  fittings etc  to  maximise  profits and sacrifice Build Quality!
  
Our heavy duty PVC Fendering is second to none ! Complete with  End Caps .
Compare ours to our rivals !
They don't come near to us with quality !  
  
 IMG_0673 
There 's plenty of head room in the Falkland Fisher 500  which incorporates a cuddy big enough to sit in, whatever your size, and enable you to  escape the elements.
 
cabin cushions
 
A cushion  set  is  available  to  improve comfort  and  is  worth  every  penny  when  at  sea  all  day!
 
premier cuddy door open
 
A Baulkhead with  a  lockable  door  is  available  as an  extra (standard on the Premier)  and  is ideal  if  you want  to keep  tackle, equipment  etc  on  your  boat  under  lock  &  key.
 
 Visibility  is  not  greatly  impaired when  seated at the helm  as  a  polycarbonate  window  is  incorporated  directly  above  the  console . There  is  also  a window  fitted  into  the port  side  baulkhead, to  further  aid  visibility.

This is the deck space looking from the cuddy towards the stern.
For a 5 metre (16ft 5") fast fishing boat , there really is loads of room
 for up to four anglers . A fixed  fuel  tank  option  can  easily  be incorporated at manufacture, underneath  the  floor.
 
rear seat storedrear seat fitted up 
 
A rear moulded  seat is yet another  standard feature. It  utilises  space  and  enables  the other  anglers  on  board  to  sit  in  comfort  while travelling  to  the  fishing  grounds. 
 
 
This is easily  removed in seconds for increased fishing  space ! It fits  under the engine  well  in  front  of  the  fuel  tank, out  of  the  way  and  not  taking  up  valuable  Deck  space.
It can  easily  be  pulled  out and  re- fitted for  travelling to and from fishing marks.

The second man's seat showing the built in fire extinguisher and rod tubes built into the hull side which are a great touch !
These were extra's requested by the customer and were worth every penny !
 
Lockable ,  stowage lockers are fitted port & starboard sides into the moulded bunkboxes and also the steering console which  houses  the  batteries.
 This gives loads of dry storage space - essential on any boat this size .Under the swivel helmsman seat , another open stowage area is built in . 
 
 
dalkland fisher mk2 sampson post 
 
The  Falkland Fisher 500 (formerly 160) incorporates quality stainless steel rear sampson posts 4" instead of conventional cleats . This makes life far easier when securing ropes / fenders etc ,and really do look the part !
 
The large engine well means that the Falkland Fisher 500  can easily accommodate twin engines ! This is an important factor when deciding which boat to buy as it gives more options on use etc and is something that the majority of boatbuilders seem to have forgotten! It also makes embarking and disembarking relatively straightforward.
( see Falkland Premier web page for pictures )
 
  A non slip floor finished in  grey gel coat  to reduce glare off the sun is a hard wearing standard feature that is essential in any fishing boat .
  
A livebaitwell tank complete with pumps and all plumbing is an extra well worth having.  The size of the tank, makes it ideal for  joey mackerel as well as sandeels and as it's built into the engine well, there's no loss of space inside the boat.

All Boats are built using the very latest hi-tech materials which are all Lloyds approved .The Boat is built incorporating an english oak hard wood keel ,this is totally encapsulated in GRP for 100% protection, ideal if a keel band is reqd .This also gives the boat exceptional longitudinal strength. 
 
Buoyancy is present throughout , rendering the vessel virtually unsinkable . The steering console has a spacious feel to it with plenty of room for electronics to be fitted .The steering position is perfect for standing or sitting .It's your choice ! 
 
two boats  
 
The floor area incorporates an underfloor foam sandwich between two laminated skins and a  Hardwood Ply floor which is fibreglassed and sealed, prior to the application of the non slip gelcoat . The bow also has buoyancy built in which increases strength and suppresses wave slap noise at anchor .
  
 A  portable fuel tank can be located in a purpose built hold below the engine well or a  tank  incorporated under  the  floor  as a  fixed fuel  tank option. A Fuel Filter / Water Seperator , which is bolted through the engine well is  another  option on your Falkland Fisher and  is a great  piece  of  kit , ensuring  that  your  engine  receives  the  cleanest  fuel  possible!
There's still plenty of room for the bilge pump.The batteries are  fitted in the  steering  console  well  away  from  the  fuel ( for safety ) .
  
For any specific requirements , please ask ! it's  no  trouble!
